Day 12 – Shelburne

Today was rainy and foggy and was a perfect day to chill around Shelburne. We got up and went for breakfast at the Scotia Lunch again. Then we went down to check out the historical waterfront district. We saw the barrel factory and several buildings from the late 1780s and early 1800s. There is the County Museum and right across from that a Dory Shop. I enjoyed that the most. We spoke to a builder for quite a while and learned so much. There is a lot of history to those boats. Then we went into the Ross-Thompson House which had been a residence, wholesale store and some sort of post office. The owner was in charge of the local militia and there are several antique rifles on the second floor. There was a building that was created specifically for the movie The Scarlet Letter called the Guild Hall – it is just off of Dock Street. We ate lunch at The Sea Dog Saloon and then checked out the Yacht Club and the Osprey Arts Centre.
The rest of the evening was for resting and catching up on things. This is our last night in Shelburne as we all leave tomorrow (Hal to St John and us towards Woodstock NB).
We haven’t decided for sure if we are going to take the ferry or drive but I think we are leaning towards taking the ferry.
